More calmly narrated than what we might call the “Ulmer” version, this version also elides the deaths that introduce the other film. Julie and Roy are still central characters though, strangely, it seems that the NTA itself is the real focus here.

I was first hesitant to watch another version of this film so soon, but I just put it on, and was quite engrossed in this one much more than the calamity-narrated previous film. Same footage, different narration, better film. Interesting.
